just a info on the camera. I've just picked one up, non reflex for some stop motion work It has a fixed lens (25mm) and 2 adaptors that change the angle to 12.5 or 50mm.
It's much quitter than the k3 and bolex (expected as there is no mirror shutter). Several speeds and single frame. An internal light meter (very cool designe) and u can change the film speed from 12 to 600 iso. There is an indicator that shows how much winding left. And it's very pretty. OK, to the point, i was nearly buying a nonreflex bolex for 60 pounds (more than 2x what i paid on the eumig) so I think the nonreflex bolexes are a bit inflated. I'll do a test drive this weekend and project, to give an idea on stability.
Anyway, if anyone is considering a nonreflex cam, the c16 should be considered

I am looking at a C16. Are you still enjoying yours? I am a landscaper and want to film some of installations. SO the internal light meter and single frame capapbility is what I want.
